Needle-binding

Testing a blogpost from my iPhone ... Need to learn...;0)
So if it looks strange... It's only me ... Trying to figure this out!!!:0)

Making my school work at Mum and Dads place... having some days off around EASTER...

Needle-binding, single needle knitting, knotless knitting is some of the translations I get of this technique... Nålbindning!!




Enjoying my days with family and sunshine!!!



Ok... Let's see how this looks on the blog!!!...:0)

Take care and enjoy your days!!

My Workplace...

NOT my sewing room.. :o)
It´s Still under CONSTRUCTION....!!!


But I thought I´d share some photos from what I work with during my days at work...

I work at a Recycle Store...
 where we have a Store... where we sell almost everything that comes in given to us by people...
Some things are just sold as they are...but some things we Upcycle or just ReMake...

I work at the Textile Department...
and I work as a Product Developer...
I test ..I sew ...and try to find fun things to do....
mostly for our ReMake products...

This picture is from "Textilen" where I work....
We have done some reorganizations since these pictures were taken...but 
you get the idea ... I hope..:o))

Some things to work with...

Some things made this winter....


I used some of our old prints to make a noteboard...
this was fun...and a great idea!!

Really Bright and BOLD!!

Dont you just love that strawberry print....:O)

The remade Shop around Valentines day!!

Pillows, the patchwork chair....the heart mobiles...
 made by me and some toilet bags too... :o)

And a flower I made two weeks ago!


I LOVE my work.. :o)
 but it also takes a lot of creativity away from me... 
but it both gives and takes....
Some days I am totally empty when coming home.... :o)

Sadly this work ends in July...
have talked to the BOSS.. and hope to be able to continue..
but there is no good hope for that!!
Always lack of MONEY!! :o(

Well well.. thats it... 
now you know what I do on workdays...
when I come home I study ...:O)

And NOW I better continue with my 
Sewing room!! :o)

See you!!
